Song: Dear Father
Album: Underclass Hero

Good Song. You should listen to it. Ok, this song is in standard tuning.
This was pretty hard to tab out because there are bells, i think piano, in this song as 
as guitars and bass.

Intro (on second time, i think its a piano that comes in so don't get confused)

Intro x2

Chorus x4

Intro x2 Guitar 1 faintly heard.

Verse x4 without Guitar 2 doing the palm muting.

Chorus Distorted Heavily x4, first two times just power chords without any extra notes 
in the choruses before. Then last two times play the extra notes in brackets at the end 
the third and fourth chorus.

End on:

E|---|

And there you go! Suggestions and corrections are welcome!
ENJOY!
